BANG for the buck!

21.02.2017
Little did I expect perfection from a bass guitar of this price!

I'm almost done with recording my upcoming album and the sound this bass makes, really sings!!

I must admit, I was indeed sceptical of how this would sound but now I realise for such a low price, this bass guitar is truly ahead of it's time - and that's all thanks to the legendary Musikhaus Thomann efficiency and quality!

At the risk of annoying customers: HOW CAN YOU SELL THIS FOR SUCH A GREAT PRICE?! It's worth more than I could put into words - and the bassist in my live touring band agrees!

The clarity and dynamics of every note is unbelievable and it's as if this beast of a bass is permanently EQ'd to perfection; there's the lows that can cause an earthquake, the mids that'll tear right through you and the high-end spank that you can slap with; oh and I forgot to mention, the setup of the Harley Benton PB-20 BK Standard Series is something I am in awe of!

Please, Thomann, PLEASE KEEP THE PRODUCTION OF THIS BASS GOING! :D

As a guitar player, I know what I'm looking at and through experience; I find that my eye is subconsciously trained to notice quality control, imperfections & shortcuts and yet, Musikhaus Thomann have perfected a wonderful instrument that is both versatile and incredibly musical, without ANY problems!

I promise you will not be disappointed in the slightest with this fine art of a bass guitar; you would be WRONG not to want one!!

By all means, test out and trial any bass guitar, and somehow you will find yourself running back to THIS bass guitar - it's truly a masterpiece!

Thank you, for such a wonderful instrument!!

Definitely worth its price

17.11.2015
I bought this because I needed a cheap bass for practice and noodling at the office. My only demands was that it should be cheap so I don't have to shed any tears if it gets stolen, and that it should be playable.

I was rather surprised when I opened the box and found a very decent bass indeed. All the parts are, of course, the cheapest possible. The chrome hardware is a bit uneven, pots are those cheap split shaft versions, the pickguard is a bit rough around the edges, but everything is right in the places where it really matters. The neck is straight, the frets are even and the fret ends are very smooth. The pickups sound good without any hiss or hum. The bass is very light, I'm fairly certain it weighs in at less than 4 kg.

One other good thing wa the factory setup. It came with a fairly low action and good intonation. It was even pretty much in tune out of the box. These things don't really matter in the long run, of course, but considering it's an entry level instrument, and most buyers probably don't know how to setup a bass, it's nice to know this is done properly.

I can recommend this bass to anyone seeking a backup bass, or even a main player if you're low on cash. This can easily play in the same league as a Squier, and for a fraction of the price.
